I saw this on a YouTube video from Stewart the Blacksmith. Take  some round stock and bend it into a u and clamp it in a vise. Pictures are self explanatory. Cost 5 minutes. in the forge.

In the Alabama forge councils periodical they had some forks that were even better.  Since I don't really do anything that requires them I have no reason to make them, but take two pieces of angle iron and weld some 1/2" round stock to the angle.  The two pieces are put in your vice and adjusted to the size needed for the stock being used. 

Rule #10;  "I can make that" translates to; "I'm to cheap to buy it new."

I've seen those sliding vice forks and they are on my to do list. But these U forks are quick on the move. I'll see if I can find those plans or maybe some one else can post them if they I have them.
